So a little back story: I have had 4 knee surgeries and I’ve been told I should never run again and try to stick it out until I am 40 get to knee replacements.
Well that is bull...., I’m only 32 years old with 2 very active boys... plus I use to be a Marine. So I am SLOWLY working on getting to 3.2 miles. I have completed that once in the past month... but all my other jogs are 1 mile.. 1.5... maybe 2 miles but I am trying really hard to listen to my knees...
It’s starting to get a little discouraging when my body doesn’t really appreciate jogging much more than that... so I have slowly been trying to just improve my time.
I started at 1 mile in about 12-13 minutes and I am down to 10.30
So yeah progress but even with the improved time... my knees/body/mind say no more.
Will I ever get past this hurdle?
